3 New Shortcuts for a More Efficient e-Discovery Project

In e-discovery, time is a vital—and usually inflexible—resource that we never seem to get enough of. This month’s RelativityOne update offers more ways to simplify your projects and save valuable time. We offered a sneak peek into a lot of great new functionality at Relativity Fest 2017, including some of this month's enhancements. 

A few of the enhancements include a simplified process to mass revert document edits, even more support for non-English review, and an easier way to get Analytics set up in your new workspaces.

1. The ability to easily mass revert document edits.

In an ideal e-discovery world, you would have all the details about a case before you start review and your contract reviewers would all be on the same page. But this isn’t always the case. Sometimes new information can change what’s considered responsive, or maybe someone improperly coded a lot of documents.

Data Grid for audit now offers a convenient remedy to these scenarios by allowing you to mass undo edits on documents in the Relativity UI. When a user performs an edit that needs to be changed, an administrator can quickly filter the audits and select “revert” to undo the edits on all of the necessary documents at once.

2. Email threading support for German messages.

Last month we announced that we would offer email threading support for more languages, and we started with support for French emails. We’re excited to expand the languages supported in email threading by adding German to the list. More languages will be supported in upcoming updates.

3. Templatized structured analytics sets.

When a new matter comes in, you want to start organizing and analyzing the data right away. Templatized workspaces help teams get up and running quickly; however, to use powerful structured analytics tools—such as email threading or textual near duplicate identification—you’re required to set up a structured analytics set, which can take a little time.

Relativity Analytics now gives you the ability to include structured analytics sets, as well as related results fields, in a template workspace. Your templatized structured analytics set, results fields, and any views or searches referencing those fields will be copied over to your new workspace, reducing the number of steps required to get started.
